I worked with Julie at Mr. Cooper, she was just a bright light in the room. She sat on the end of the row I sit on and I'd always mess with her and wiggle her chair as I walked by, she'd either says "hey!" Or growl at me lol. She even got me back a couple times. Just the sweetest lady. I still look at her desk as I walk by and remember shes up there with the angels looking down at us. Jai.e Miller, January 17, 2020 Julie was the best friend I ever had and she was always there for me when I needed her and I tried to be there for her. To quote a friend of ours when Julie said she did not want to ruin the party, they told her what party she was the party. She made life fun and I feel the loss of her sunshine.

Cyndi Ditmore Haass, January 14, 2020 I only knew Julie for a short time but we hit it off from the beginning. She was a very personable person and easy to befriend. Her absence has definitely left a void. Rest in peace sweet friend. Margie Grande , January 14, 2020 Julie (Mom) you are missed beyond words.
